Send Money Quickly & Safely with Zelle

Zelle® Is A Fast, Safe & Free Way To Send Money To Family & Friends

With Zelle® it’s now easy to send and receive money from people you trust like family and friends.  P2P, or Person to Person payments are a great convenience - and it’s free to WyHy members!  It’s similar to cash.  So, you want to make sure you use it to pay only those people you know and trust, like your roommate, your dad, close friends, or the kids. It’s not for sending money to people you don’t know, like that stranger on the internet -who is offering a super deal on those adorable puppies.

How Zelle® Works For Millions Of People

When you enroll with Zelle®, your name, WyHy’s name and the email address or U.S. mobile phone number you use when enrolling is shared with Zelle® (none of your sensitive account details are shared – those stay at WyHy). When someone sends money to your enrolled email address or mobile number, Zelle® doesn’t actually transfer the money – it looks up the email address or mobile number in its “Zelle Network directory” and notifies WyHy of the incoming payment. WyHy then directs the payment into your bank account, all while keeping your sensitive account details private.  The money arrives within minutes.

Okay, so how do I get started?

Zelle® is already in your WyHy mobile banking app! Nothing extra to download or add.  It’s that dollar sign, right there on the very bottom of the screen:

Once you’re enrolled with Zelle® (WyHy’s routing number is 307086691), all you need is an email address or U.S. mobile phone number to send money to friends and family straight from your WyHy app. (Doesn’t that beat having to get cash for the babysitter, or giving them a check that they just stare at?)

Enter the amount you want to send. If your recipient is already enrolled with Zelle®, the money will go directly into their bank account, typically in minutes. If they aren’t enrolled yet, they will get a notification explaining how to receive the money simply and quickly.

Remember.  Never share your username or password with anyone.  And make sure that the mobile phone number or email address you enter is correct.  (We have some additional FAQs at this link.)

It’s already in your WyHy Digital Banking – give it a try!  You’ll love the convenience and security. And remember, Zelle® is FREE to Wyhy members!
